MADRID, May 10. (Portaltic/EP) –
Intel has exposed its roadmap for the coming months and has anticipated that the gradual launch of the new Arc GPUs will begin in the Chinese market, where They will arrive in the summer.
The company has detailed its plans in a blog post signed by Vice President and General Manager of Visual Compute Group, Lisa Pearce, which has addressed some questions raised by the web community in recent weeks.
One of these issues has focused on the imminent arrival of graphics cards for desktop computers of its Arc family, of which it has indicated that Intel will start working with system manufacturers and original equipment (OEM) with specific configurations.
“We will launch our products Intel Arc A-series entry-level for desktop computers first in China” Pearce has pointed out, who has also pointed out that “the proximity to the components of the board and the strong demand for products” make this country the right place to start distribution in the second quarter of the year.
With this, he argued that his next step will be to “scale these products globally.” On the other hand, the release of Intel Arc A5 and A7 graphics cards will start with all OEMs later this summer.
The sale of these components will then occur on a large scale. “This tiered approach gives us confidence at every step that we can effectively serve our customer base.”
Pearce has also explained at what point in the development process the company is in relation to the status of the integration of the graphics cards of the Arc family with the ‘smartphones’ and how have you worked with manufacturers of mobile phones.
“First was Samsung, so it started to become available in Korea, and is expanding globally. We plan to have high OEM availability right now,” he said, noting that the company has had supply problems.
Finally, Pearce has said that, “despite the limitations,” its OEM partners have announced laptops with Intel Arc 3 graphics cards, including Samsung, Lenovo, Acer, HP Y ASUS.
It should be remembered that the processor manufacturer announced last February that it would delay the launch of Arc graphics cards until the second quarter of 2022. On the other hand, the professional versions of its new Arc graphics brand would not be released until later, during the third quarter of this year.
